Peter Acworth, noted bondage enthusiast and CEO of Kink.com, a BDSM porn studio based in San Francisco, was charged with drug possession on Tuesday.
Officers went to the fetish-porn studio in the Mission District Armory on Feb. 1 after someone reported seeing an online video of people shooting guns inside the hulking building at 14th and Mission streets, said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman.
“If you’re not a shooting range, you can’t be shooting a gun inside a building,” Esparza said.
Officers found evidence that guns had been fired inside the armory, but did not make any gun-related arrests, Esparza said. However, they did pat down company CEO Peter Acworth, 42, of San Francisco when he did not promptly answer the door, and found he had a few grams of cocaine in his pocket, authorities said.
Acworth was arrested for possession of cocaine for personal use and was later freed from County Jail on a $15,000 bail. His attorney Michael Stapanian said “the charge amounts to a $60 mistake” and “will be handled as quickly and expeditiously as possible.”
In a statement, the Kink head called the attention being drawn to the studio “regrettable”, but said it will continue its “endeavors to be positive contributors to the neighborhood and city of San Francisco.”
Well, thank god for Acworth and his salacious bondage videos or who knows what kind of depraved crapper San Fran would be in.
